All The Kings Men
Drama about the rise and fall of a corrupt southern governor who promises his way to power. Broderick Crawford portrays Willie Stark, who, once he is elected, finds that his vanity and power lust prove to be his downfall. The film is based on the 1946 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Robert Penn Warren.
- " The cast Is tremendous, though only three or four carry the heavy end of the log. Broderick Crawford makes a very good job as Stark, whom he portrays as a likable U.S. reprobate, in whom there are still sparks of decency. " – Erle Cox (The Chiel)
- " Strong stuff, aided by great photography. " – Bob Thomas
- " It is one of the most vital and honest films to come out of Hollywood in a long time. " – Kate Cameron
